We drove up to Sonoma today to have a picnic and take some pictures. We ended up at Jack London Park, a ranch the author owned and operated.
It was interesting, he was always trying new things. At the little signs everywhere it was always noted how the ranchers in the area laughed at him or that some idea of his didn't work (eucalyptus trees, feeding cactus to livestock). In this case, he built a circular pig area with a structure in the middle. The idea what that it would save time on feeding - the ranchers called it the Palace Hotel for Pigs.
I like that he tried things and failed. It's inspiring to me.
This shot is shooting from inside the circular building at the Pig Palace.
